First Review by veganmiss

Beautiful upscale resort with very limited vegan options - Edit

Most people come to see the very large upscale resort, gardens, koi ponds, & beach (you can do that without visiting the restaurants).
The vegan menu item underwhelmed for the price. Large pieces of grilled tofu, a few ali'i mushroom slivers, & veggies while tasty, required a second dinner later. (The local ali'i mushroom is very tasty & inexpensive in local food markets.)

Pros: one vegan entree -- though tasty (& easily could h

Cons: expensive (for what it was), very limited vegan menu

accommodating but nothing crazy inventive - Edit

We ate here after my fiancé's sister got married at the Hyatt last week. They had arranged for us to have vegan options but only got there it almost seemed like they were planning on the spot. It ended up fine though - they made us first course with Brussels sprouts, the entree was a portobello mushroom, and sorbets for dessert. Paired with tons of wine it was a filling meal! And the staff was totally on top of things and very attentive and wanting to please.

(This won't apply to most diners but just have to mention it...The one really negative thing I'll say is they need to buy The Joy of Vegan Baking. We were all sent home with pastries and our vegan options were like these cupcakes and they tasted like Play-Doh!! We threw them all away because they were so nasty. Maybe they came from elsewhere on the Hyatt property though.)

Cool place - Edit

There is really only one entree option here without meat, so your choice will be very limited. However, the atmosphere is really cool since it's in a thatched roof open hut style right on the hotel's pool. The grounds of the hotel are lovely to walk around and see too. I'd go back again if they had another food choice, but they don't, so I won't.

Pros: atmosphere

Cons: limited menu, very expensive

Beautiful Atmosphere & Good Food - Edit

One of the best hotels on the island is the Grand Hyatt Kaua'i. That being said, it has some of the best restaurants on the island too. Tidepools is located on the pools of the resort with cute thatched hut-style roofs. Their menu has vegetable samosa and the garden isle salad for starters. For your main meal, they have tofu hiryozu which is quite tasty. It is like tofu crab cakes almost.

Pros: nice setting, vegan friendly

Cons: only a few options
